This is an elegant place to dine. The service has improved a bit since our visits in the past, and we enjoyed our meal. Food is nice. We had the seafood stuffed chicken and the shrimp, which was tasty, but the mashed potato side tasted like instant potatoes.

My wife had a Filet and I had the Filet and shrimp, they were both excellent. The portion sizes were perfect but unfortunately we didn't have room for desert. Reservations are required. We had to make them two days in advance. Very friendly staff.

Another great meal. Wilbert is an excellent server. The table side steak Diane, Caesar salad and flaming coffee are terrific.

We were a party of 7 so sampled a fair amount of the dishes offered. All the meals were presented beautifully, certainly can be called fine dining. The ChateauxBriand just melted in the mouth,the best I've had.

We dine here every year and we are never disappointed. It is a very popular restaurant so it is wise to make reservations well in advance. The food is delicious and the service is attentive. Entertainment is provided by Jorge Duran, a classical guitarist, who plays a wide gamut of songs.

Thank Jim R
